Leavesden Studios Harry Potter Tour

16 Aug

If you follow my twitter (@aculturedlad linked to on my homepage here) you’ll know that I tweeted the link to this cinemablend article (check out http://www.cinemablend.com, great movie news website) because I definitely want to spend my money on this. You won’t know this about me already but I absolutely love Harry Potter. This series has been a massive part of my life/childhood yes, I’m a massive fan. Yes, I was one of those saddos that lined up at midnight for the last book, but let me tell you, it was worth it. JK Rowling is an incredible writer and one that I truly admire. The films didn’t disappoint either and add to the fact that I grew up with Harry, Ron and Hermione as well as all their magical friends. I stumbled upon this article and couldn’t help but get excited.

Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick/Griphook) were at the Empire Big Screen event two days ago to announce that tickets will go on sale this October 13 to tour through Leavesden studios where a lot of Warner Brothers movies are made but most importantly the magic of the Harry Potter franchise was created there. This isn’t going to be at all like the Universal Theme Park, this is a tour of the studios, no rides, fancy drinks or anything like that, it’s just a film studio. To be honest, I’d rather go here than the theme park though!

Tickets won’t be cheap but I personally think they will be worth it. Mentioned above, they will go on sale October 13th and will be for the tour staring in Spring 2012. The price is £28 for adults and £21 for children with bookings only. The studio is only 20 miles from Central London so transport won’t be an issue for me!

How can you not get excited about being able to go through the great hall, Dumbledore’s office, Hagrid’s Hut, Snape’s Dungeon, Diagon Alley plus more but for me the main attraction will be being able to see the breathtaking set for the Ministry of Magic. You’ll be able to see all the costumes, all the special effects used for broomsticks, the Chamber of Secrets, Whomping Willow and so much more.

I cannot wait to go personally and I don’t think that anyone who remotely likes Harry Potter wouldn’t love to go to this. If you’re a massive fan then no matter how cash-strapped you’re feeling this will be worth it.

      Thanks for the ‘like’!

      I know right! I’m really excited for the Ministry set personally because that looks amazing! It was also perfectly mirrored from how I imagined when I read the book.

      Your fan fic is a very good idea!

      Stick around!
